Agree!
Great old film. Seems to capture the culture & atmosphere of 'Good Olde England' (or Wales) perfectly.
I watched 'Dunkirk' with Richard Attenborough a couple of nights ago. Another classic.
Have you seen 'Sea Of Sand?' Terrific film :D

I love these old films. Ice Cold in Alex is my favourite but there are loads I love to watch. My other half thinks I'm barking.
I always wonder though, why don't they remake some of these. Maybe it's best not as we'd probably find that the Americans are suddenly at Dunkirk, I mean, after all THEY found the Enigma machine didn't they??????!!!!! No, I'm not cynical, honestly. But in reality it's such a shame these stories are not retold it might actually help kindle some interest from the younger generations if they did.

I suppose that you know the ultimate secret of the movie? Most people do but some don't so here it is.
See this pic,

And this one,

Well the the second one is the church used in the recording of The Vicar Of Dibley"
They used the same Oxfordshire village of Turville for both things. Many of the houses and shops used in one can be seen in the other.
Now re-watch the movie with new found interest.

The "secret" (read: "coincidence"/"point of movie trivia") is that the village it was filmed in was the same village the TV sitcom 'Vicar of Dibley' was filmed in.

Yes, Turville is a very pretty village, very similar in looks to the other popular village film location Aldbury, which is also in the picturesque Chilterns. Both great places to have period looking photos staged. Aldbury still has it's original village stocks on the green! And the site of the WW2 US staging camp at the Bridgewater Monument (known locally as the "Ashridge Monument") in just up 'Tom's Hill' from Aldbury.

When I commented on it - it was only a photo of the screenshot from the film - there was no modern photo and no Dibley reference - it was edited afterwards and the rest of the info put in - making my comment redundant!

Like in Mother Russia the hatred of the Gitlerite means the graves are grubbed out and destroyed, that old bird with the Hatchet was a viscous old bag.

Whenever I watch The Vicar Of Dibley, I wonder if the Reverend Geraldine (played by Dawn French) 'knows' about things which happened there in the war ;). And if the house which David Horton lives in, is the one that Thora Hird killed her first German, and they must have repaired the Grenade damage by now. But I always smile when I think that the woman who threw pepper in the face of the German and killed him with her axe might have been dopey Alice's Grandmother ;) And then I think to myself what would happen if Alice told Geraldine the stories her Grandmother to her when she was little!!!
Well enough speculating for now, time to watch the repeats on the beeb and smile.
David.

Off topic,
Turville is also the village from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The windmill is on the hill.
